Ulta Glitterati Minis..AKA Deborah Lippmann Dupe Set

Good morning, readers! I have a fun post for you today! Remember my new Ulta polish sets I showed you in my haul post yesterday? This post will show you one of those sets: the Glitterati set. I got this set free with my $5 off coupon, but it is on sale for $4.99 now if you want to snag it at your local Ulta. I was impressed with all of them because they only needed 2 coats! At least 3 of these are very close to popular and pricey Deborah Lippmann polishes. Maybe you can help with with the 4th one and tell me if it's also a dupe?

Here we go:
This is a close up of the box set. They are not labeled individually but the box is labeled.

Note: these swatches are a little bumpy because I didn't use topcoat. :)

First up we have Ulta Hide and Go Sequins. This is a dupe to DL Bad Romance. I don't own any Deborah Lippmanns but I did already have the recent Revlon Facets of Fuchsia dupe!  

Index and Ring finger have Ulta Hide and Go Sequins and Middle and Pinky nails are Revlon Facets of Fuchsia. The Ulta is only 2 coats while Revlon required 3. 

Next up we have Fashionable Late. This is the only one that I'm unsure of any DL dupes. It looks to be similar to Today Was a Fairy Tale but more gunmetal colored and not silver. 

This is only 2 coats. I love this! You can see the 2 different sized glitters in the darker base color.

Next up we have Black Tie Affair. This seems like a dupe for DL Ruby Red Slippers. I have the other RRS dupe: Wet n Wild Behind Closed Doors from the On The Prowl Collection to compare for you.

Index and Ring fingers are Ulta Black Tie Affair and Middle and Pinky are WnW Behind Closed Doors. Again, Ulta only needed 2 coats while Wet n Wild needed 3. 

Lastly, we have Glamoflauge. This seems like a dupe to Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe. That is the only DL I've ever had on my wishlist and I feel now that I can erase that and enjoy this little beauty. I don't have anything to compare for you, but you can see ATU swatches here from my friend Sarah at Chalkboard Nails. 

Only 2 coats. Lovely isn't it? This is the polish that I bought the entire set for. I love love love it!

What do you think? Are you going to go get this set, or do you already have it? I was pleasantly surprised with this set and hope they decide to make them full sized! Thanks for reading!
Pin It!


  1. Wow it looks beautiful, I hope they have them in Holland too

  2. My best friend has the set and I've already taken the Across the Universe dupe. I can't wait to steal from her (I mean borrow) the rest of them. Considering buying :)

  3. wow I need Glamoflauge now too! lol

  4. OMG, I've totally been looking for a ATU dupe without any luck. (Essence has one but I can't find anyplace that carries that collection of Essence.)Going to Ulta next week for this! Can't believe the colors or the price!

    I have to say, the pictures definitely make the ULTA versions seem muuch bumpier than the other brands.

    It looks like Fashionable Late is a dupe of a recently released Lipmann you can read about here: WnW's Diamond in the Rough and CG's Some Like it Haute are very close to this one.

  5. I like that set a lot!!! I am really in love with charcoal glitter.

  6. These are very nice although they are in serious need of topcoat :D Thank you for sharing x

  7. These are neat! I'm a glitter buff so I think I may have to get this set!

  8. As soon as I saw this set in the Ulta ad, I knew the blue was a DL ATU dupe! Unfortunately I have yet to did this set at my Ulta. Will try my luck tomorrow!

  9. Fashionably Late is much more opaque than DL Fairytale, and the last one looks like a mix between ATU like you said and Lady Sings the Blues.

    Great job on the dupe finding! I love my DL's, I'm such a fan so I just buy hers *blush*
